The public is constantly watching celebrities’ every move. We seem to be fascinated with them because they are living the lives we wish we had and we get to fantasize about being in their place. Often times celebrities buy extremely expensive cars because they have a large, expendable income, but these celebrities broke the mold and use cars that the public can actually afford, bringing them down to a real, personal level. Here are 10 celebrities that drive cars that you and I theoretically could own.

Leonardo DiCaprio has been a proponent of environmental awareness for a long time and has been known to make bold claims when it comes climate change. Obviously, it can’t always be practical to have all electric cars, so Leo is doing his best by driving the Toyota Prius. Starting at $28,000, the Prius is an affordable option that can not only help save the environment, but also your wallet.

Clint Eastwood, the king of Hollywood, has acted in and/or directed over 100 films. One would assume that a man of his stature and success would love rolling around in some luxury car or showy sports car but no, Clint enjoys driving around in his Fiat 500 that costs under $18,000.
Mini Coopers are an iconic line of cars that are loved by many around the world. They’re instantly recognizable and are also relatively inexpensive compared to other cars that are popular, starting as low as $22,000. Adele loves her Mini Cooper and can be seen driving it around when she needs to run errands.

Ben Affleck is an extremely popular actor that loves American cars and owns a Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Although the Hellcat is $40,000 more than the stock Dodge Challenger, we can still get a great looking version of the car. The stock Challengers typically start at $28,000 new and can be found much cheaper used, making them an affordable sports car.

LeBron James, quite possibly the most famous athlete on the planet, is known to have rich taste. This isn’t limited to his cars, either. He is multiple luxury vehicles and super cars and is also known to buy them for friends and family. One of the exceptions, though, is his Kia K900. The NBA is sponsored by Kia and their $50,000 model is their answer to the luxury desires of the public while keeping the vehicle at a relatively low price.

When someone has extreme fame and fortune, it’s always interesting to see what they use their money on. Selena Gomez has been seen multiple times in her BMW X5, a luxury performance vehicle.

Volkswagen -or the People’s Car- makes vehicles that are meant for everyone. The Jetta is one of Volkswagen’s sedans that are extremely inclusive and affordable coming in at under $20,000. Justin Timberlake has been seen driving around LA multiple times in his Jetta, just like a normal person,

Even though he could afford LITERALLY any car he could ever want, he sticks with a car that comes in around $48,000.
